Milestone celebration: Sébastien Tutenges’s book launch: Intoxication
All staff and master’s students of the Department of Sociology and the guests they have invited are warmly welcome to our informal "Milestone celebrations" in the lunch room at the Department of Sociology in Lund.
On Friday, 21 April at 15:15-17:00, we will celebrate the launch of Sébastien Tutenges’s book "Intoxication: An Ethnography of Effervescent Revelry".
Sébastien Tutenges will hold a presentation which will be followed by an open discussion and refreshments.
The book takes the reader to bars, nightclubs, festivals, nightlife resorts, underground dance parties and drug dens to explore the nature of partying, especially focused on intoxication.
Why do people across cultures gather regularly to intoxicate themselves?
With the help of microsociology, cultural criminology and cultural sociology, Tutenges shows the deeper meaning of moving beyond the everyday, into a changed state of mind where the unexpected can take place.
